Objective. Considerable controversy surrounds whether a history of otitis media with effusion (OME) in early childhood causes later speech and language problems. We conducted a meta-analysis of prospective studies to determine: 1) whether a history of OME in early childhood is related to receptive language, expressive language, vocabulary, syntax, or speech development in children 1 to Cited by:

Acute otitis media is a common reason for antibiotic prescribing, despite strong evidence that antibiotics provide minimal benefit.

About million diagnosed episodes of OME occur annually in the United States at a cost of $ billion. 7 The indirect costs are likely much higher since OME is largely asymptomatic and many episodes are therefore undetected, including those episodes in children with hearing difficulties or school performance issues.

Introduction. Acute middle ear infections (acute otitis media, or AOM) are among the most common illnesses in babies and young children. Most children will have had at least one acute middle ear infection by the age of three.

Parents often have sleepless nights when their child has a middle ear infection. Otitis media is a group of inflammatory diseases of the middle ear. The two main types are acute otitis media (AOM) and otitis media with effusion (OME). AOM is an infection of rapid onset that usually presents with ear pain.

In young children this may result in pulling at the ear, increased crying, and poor sleep. Decreased eating and a fever may also be tion: Paracetamol (acetaminophen), ibuprofen. Acute otitis media (AOM) is the most common diagnosis in childhood acute sick visits.
